Comments: Base 2, 8, 10, and 16 (Also known as Binary, Octal, Decimal, and hexidecimal)

If you've ever heard Tom Lehrer's song, "New Math," you'll remember this sort of thing you're trying to teach your readers. At one point, he says, "Well, actually the book wanted you to do it in base eight. But don't worry--base eight is just like base ten...if you're missing two fingers!" He then goes on teaching through song.
